Kayaking Course - 3 Day Introductory Course Description

Our 3 days kayak course is perfect for those people that love adrenaline and want to try a unique adventure sport. In our kayaking school we'll teach you the basic movements and strokes and to dominate the eskimo roll, which is the technique that will let you paddle with your kayak in the rivers of Ecuador and the world. 

This is a course designed for beginners although the kayakers that have a little bit more experience will be excited to take advantage of the wild waters of our rivers and canyons, plunging down the falls and rocking through the rapids. If you are a beginner, for your security you'll start practicing on a pool first and then you'll be ready to paddle on the lower side of the Pastaza river!

Day 1

  1. Will begin with an introduction to kayaking to discuss the equipment and general safety guidelines.
  2. Course participants will then watch an instructional video to learn the most important move in kayaking, the “Eskimo Roll.”
  3. This technique is employed when you need to quickly resume the upright position in the event that you are flipped upside down in your kayak.
  4. This day is spent with our instructors in a pool to familiarize you with the equipment and practice the Eskimo Roll until you are able to do it on your own!

Day 2

  1. This practice will brings us to the river and one step closer to the fun! We start at a Grade II (non-technical rapids) area and here learn paddling techniques and work on perfecting the Eskimo Roll.

Day 3

  1. Will be the time to prove to yourself that you are ready to take on the bigger water!
  2. We will be able to put all that practice to work and soar down some Grade III rapids!
  3. After completing your Geotours course all it will take to become an accomplished kayaker is to practice your skills on different rivers!

Your safety is our highest priority. Geotours follows strict safety guidelines and will equip you with appropriate safety gear prior to leaving our office in Baños.
